Tombstone Tuesday - Isadore R. Brandstetter

Isadore R.
1866 - 1952

Buried Smithland Cemetery, Livingston County, Kentucky. Tombstone photographed 14 August 2009.

The Kentucky death certificate of Isadore Brandstetter shows he was born 18 June 1886, but died 9 October 1952 at the age of 86 years, 3 months and 21 days. The year of birth (1886) is clearly in error on his death certificate. Brandstetter was a merchant in Smithland. He was born in Switzerland and his parents were Esadore Brandstetter and Julia Spinner.
